This math mystery is a fun way for 3rd graders to solve word problems in a unique way. Kids start reading at the beginning of the book, solve the problems, and go where the book tells them to go! A wrong answer will send them to a 'stopper' that will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN!
This mystery includes these skills:
*elapsed time to the 5 minutes
*reading a bar graph and figuring information from it
*add 3 2-digit numbers
*Counting and adding money
*simple fraction addition
*converting measures (feet to yards and seconds to minutes)
*measurement to 1/2 inch
There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story. Some of them are multi-step problems as well.
I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this Halloween themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
